Brisbane City Council plans IT offshoring
blog All the cool kids are conducting IT outsourcing initiatives this year. Boral’s doing it, Woolworths is doing it; it’s basically par for the course if you’re a major corporation or government department. But that hasn’t stopped one of the Brisbane City Council’s main unions from jumping up and down over Brisbane City Council’s plans to shift up to 50 IT roles offshore. The Sydney Morning Herald reports (we recommend you click here for the full article):
“Furious staff unions have lodged a formal objection with Brisbane City Council over its handling of plans to outsource 50 information technology jobs overseas.”
Frankly, we’re a little surprised with the council’s plans, considering it’s right in the middle of a huge $353 million overhaul of its business administration platform. We would have thought good governance would have suggested that it might not be the best time to offshore IT jobs when you’re in the middle of a huge IT systems overhaul. But what do we know? After all, Queensland government departments have shown how capable they are of pulling off major IT projects in the past, especially those involving SAP. Well, not really. Oh, well. Let’s just hope and pray on this one, shall we?
